The Wellness Centre is designed as a welcoming retreat for patients and carers. Regardless of where you are having treatment, you are welcome to use the Wellness Centre and its programs.
With the needs of the patient the number one priority, the Wellness Centre has been created to be more home-like than a typical hospital setting. It has comfortable couches and chairs, television, fireplace, kids play area, reading material and kitchen facilities where patients and visitors can make a cup of coffee, heat up their lunch or relax.
Patients and families are welcome to use the centre before, during and after appointments. Drop in and use the centre to relax, meet with others or attend our growing range of wellness programs.
All programs are free for patients. If you are unable to attend an appointment or program, we would appreciate if you could let us know and cancel.
Those with an interest in participating in any of the below programs can contact:
Simone Noelker, Wellness Centre Coordinator at BRICC
